I’m excited to continue to introduce you to the new AI writing assistant I’ve added to my content creation process. These new AI tools help me write more content, faster and with less effort. In this post, I’ll share some details about how it works and why I think it’s a valuable addition to my content creation arsenal. Stay tuned for future posts in which I’ll share examples of the content this AI assistant has helped me create.
AI assistants are becoming more and more sophisticated, and I’ve become aware that I could benefit from adding AI content writing assistants to my production process for a long time. In fact, I’ve been illustrating this from the stage for several years. It was only recently that I decided to officially add these assistants to my content creation process, though, and I’m pleased to demonstrate that I have a working AI assistant today.
A New AI Writing Assistant
My “assistant” is actually two tools that I’m working into a process. The first is Jasper.ai and the second is Inferkit.com, which I’m using now. Inferkit is a nifty content writing assistant with a proven track record, and I’ve had a long experience with it.
You can read more about Inferkit here. Essentially, Inferkit is taking over after I’ve created some of the content myself. I type in a few sentences and when I’m ready for Inferkit to take over, I just hit the “generate text” button. I decide what to use and what not to use.
What’s interesting about this process is that it takes far less time to write. It feels like I’ve created content far faster than I’ve ever written it in the past. It’s amazing how quickly the ideas come and flow when I’m working in tandem with the AI assistant. It feels like a high-speed brainstorming session. Sometimes I’m setting a direction. Sometimes the AI is setting the direction.
There’s a definite learning curve, however, and I recommend that you think carefully about how you can integrate AI assistants into your content creation process. The process does take a bit of time to get used to, for sure. I think you will see from the attached video that you will have to adjust to it and you will find it worthwhile.
Additional AI Assistant Considerations
One additional consideration for using AI assistants is that they’re not always smart enough to detect the direction you may have intended to lead them. It may take several generation attempts to get it right. My experience so far is that this regeneration process is still faster than coming up with ideas myself.
I have developed a slightly different approach to this regeneration process than may be used by other Inferkit users and it seems to work well for me. When I create a passage, I write as much of it as I think I need to and just let the AI generate the remainder of the text I will use.
I can’t say I completely trust the process, however. The regeneration process may lead the AI assistant to produce inappropriate content and cause me to have to regenerate it. I have had to do that to a couple of passages. I’m trying to show that in the video of this creation process.
I hope you can see in the video how useful a working AI assistant can be. It’s one more tool I can use in my content creation toolbox. And I hope you find this helpful, as well.
As always, feel free to leave your comments. And watch the video to see where this content is mine and where it’s based on the AI assistant.
Disclaimer: most of the above was written by Jasper.ai and Inferkit.com. I have simply influenced the writing and selected the suggestions I wished to allow into the flow of the post. As opposed to the first post, I have also made grammar changes and replaced a few words for clarity, mostly using suggestions from Grammarly… another piece of well-crafted AI (machine learning) software. I suppose it’s the AI writing assistant I’ve used the longest. 🙂 You can see most of the process in the video embedded below.
